To give back to the communities that give us so much, we play our part by contributing in the different areas where we operate and support organisations such as:
The Wilhelm Leuschner School award-winning bee project. Appropriately trained teachers train pupils to beekeepers to look after the 2 bee colonies and to give them a better understanding of nature and nature conservation (Egelsbach, Headquarters of SMC Germany)
The willen hospice is the charity chosen this year, by SMC UK, to support in the Milton Keynes community where their headquarters are.
SOS Children's Villages, Corona research (2020) Heart & Lung disease research (2019) (SMC SE)

Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fires or earthquakes have a truly devastating effect on a community. That’s why we support several initiatives that offer help to these communities after a natural disaster occurs. In 2019, SMC donated to the “Kamaishi City Rugby Children’s Future Fund” and the “Kamaishi City Sports Promotion Fund” as part of cooperation for supporting recovery from the earthquake disaster (SMC Tono Factory Japan).
SMC participates in green conservation activities organized by the Saitama Greenery Trust Association. SMC employees in Japan take part in weeding, pruning and cleaning activities such as raking of leaves, and other activities to preserve the local greenery.
